Default Why do only some facebook contacts sync?

Only some of my contacts sync and the others just don't.

At least some of your contacts sync, only one of mine does regularly, I have to delete and readd my Facebook acct for Sense... using 2.0d by the way.

Facebook will only sync automatically to a contact if they have their mobile number posted on their profile. You have to sync anyone that doesn't post their number on their profile manually by going to people> clicking said person> then click the circle link tab> then link facebook profile> search your facebook friends> link. Hope that helps.

Try using Facebook Sync. You can get it from the market. I use it and it works great for me.

In all honesty, I got tired of all the Facebook integration and unlinked my fb account from my phone. I can still get whatever I need from the app or mobile site.

I Just like that my contacts show their FB picture in my people list instead of having to add their pictures one by one from my phone.

I liked that a lot too but it made my people app lag an half the people's status updates it showed were from an entirely different person. Also I hated having all my fb friends as contacts.

I've had a status update from my mom as someone else's status for like a week, and the person who it is doesn't even have a facebook. I just ignore it, plus i don't really go into my "people" much. When i'm texting i do quick compose, and when i'm calling people i do the quick dial from the phone menu
